Workers Compensation

In the United States, workers’ compensation laws were created to provide financial security and medical care to employees who suffer injuries while performing their everyday job duties. In many ways, workers’ compensation serves as a safety net that protects employees from financial difficulties if they suffer work-related injuries and can no longer fulfill job-related tasks. This insurance program also offers employees payments if they need to take time off of work to recover from the injuries they suffered while at their jobs.

When people receive workers’ compensation benefits, they are generally provided with payment for:

Average Weekly Wage
Payment of Medical Expenses (i.e. independent medical evaluation, second opinion, change in doctor, prescriptions, and mileage)
Caregiver Expenses
Disability Benefits
Additionally, workers’ compensation laws permit dependents such as spouses and children to receive benefits if an employee was killed on the job. Employees that accept workers’ compensation may give up their right to file lawsuits against their employers for any pain and suffering they have endured unless the employer was found to be negligent. However, in cases where employers fail to grant injured employees or their families workers’ compensation benefits, additional legal measures may be taken.

Florida Workers’ compensation

Were you injured while on the job in Florida? If so, the very first thing you should do is file an injury report with your employer. Your employer will then file an injury report with the insurance company. Soon after, you should receive a brochure that outlines your rights and responsibilities as an injured worker. The brochure will also provide information about the state’s workers’ compensation laws.
It is very important that you file your injury report as soon as possible. According to the Florida Division of Workers’ compensation, workers’ compensation claims that are not filed within 30 days of the accident may be denied and people filing claims may not receive insurance payments. With the timeline being tough you need to act quickly.

After you have filed your injury report, you will most likely receive your first check within 21 days if you were disabled temporarily, totally, or partially. If you have not received your check or if your employer would not file your injury report, it may be beneficial to consult with a knowledgeable workers’ compensation law firm.

Unfortunately, there are instances where an employer may refuse to file an injury report, or may try to deny an employee workers’ compensation benefits. If you have experienced this, know that our team of attorneys and paralegals will try to help get you the compensation you are entitled to. We understand the financial challenges you are facing and will do all that we can to make sure you receive workers’ compensation benefits as soon as possible.
